Abstract

We present three cases, where young patients had unilateral disc edema with normal optic nerve function. We diagnosed their disease as big blind spot syndrome (BBSS). What is remarkable, however, is that in two of the three cases the extent of the visual field defect considerably exceeded the one regularly emerging in BBSS, which caused us some difficulty in differential diagnosis. The characteristics and the differential diagnostic questions of the big blind spot syndrome are summarised and we would like to draw attention to this unusual, but probably not very rare, form of it.
